English[edit]

Etymology[edit]

After Japanese mineralogist at Tohoku University Shukusuke Kozu (1880–1955), but discredited as a name in 2012, where it was renamed mangano-ferri-eckermannite for nomenclature systematicity. The suffix -lite is from Ancient Greek λίθος (líthos, stone) for it being a mineral.

Noun[edit]

kozulite

  1. (mineralogy, outdated) A monoclinic-prismatic mineral containing aluminum, hydrogen, iron, manganese, oxygen, silicon, and sodium.
